Immigration 2022 and beyond

NZ’s immigration policy has been ‘reset’ as the government seeks to ensure NZ attracts highly skilled migrants. Immigration policy continues to undergo a period of unprecedented change.

Both temporary and permanent visa categories are changing in 2022, employers will be required to become accredited with Immigration NZ and pathways to residence remain uncertain.
